DR VM in the License Summary Report

Updated

The DR VM view of the License Summary report displays usage details for the DR VM license, which is required for the Commvault Disaster Recovery (DR) replication package. Information in the report counts each unique source VM, the size of the replication job, and any jobs that are not covered by the DR VM license.

If you configure storage retention as more than 14 days for a replication group, then license usage will be counted for both the DR VM license and other data protection license types that appear in the License Summary report.

Upgrading to Commvault 11.21 and Later Releases

If you use replication for virtual machines, within 60 days after you upgrade the CommServe server to 11.21 or a later release, you must manually update from the Live Sync license to the DR VM license. After 60 days, live sync replication jobs will no longer run. If you upgrade to 11.21 or a later release, the replication source VMs will appear in both the Live Sync page and the DR VM page in the License Summary report. The source VMs are not counted twice, but the information about the source VMs appears in both locations.

To request the DR VM license, on the Maintenance Advantage portal, go to Product Registration & License Management.
